Welcome to Spring Changemaker!

We have finding interesting topics for discussions and amazing speakers to present at our upcoming events. Please take a moment to check out the calendar for events in May.

16 May, Thursday

­"Shellshocked" - Cleaning up New York Harbor with Oyster Beds (Screening w/ Q&A)­

We are hosting a screening of the award winning documentary "SHELLSHOCKED" as part of the first NYC Sustainable Seafood Week. This documentary shows how important oysters are across the NY/NJ area to improve water quality across NY Harbor. Our guest speaker Meredith Comi from NY/NJ Baykeepers who is featured in this documentary, will be discussing their really cool oyster restoration program, where anyone can participate in an Oyster Gardening project. Tickets are only $11, to help us cover the cost hiring a theater.


30 May, Thursday

Domestic Exploitation: Is Pimp Culture Over Glorified in the Media?
We wanted to spotlight human trafficking since it has been a hot topic and received ample attention from the Half the Sky movement but the sad truth is that sexual exploitation is actually happening in New York City. Our guest speaker Jillian Lee, is a local social worker and will be sharing her experience with working with these victims and provide an insight into the real pimp culture.

Looking forward to meeting all members at our upcoming events!
